TTC24 Celebrate Fall

Here is my card for the Touch Twin & More Challenges Color Challenge (TTC24). Instruction are below for how I created the leaves.

I selected some fun fall colored Touch Twin markers.

Using a big acrylic block for my pallet (you can use a piece of glass, mirror or plastic) I dabbed my colors on randomly.

Next I dropped 70% alcohol onto my pallet – I used a waterbrush to drip big drops but you can also put alcohol into a mist bottle.

You need to be quick on the next step because the ink dries very fast. Drip your alcohol on and this slap (technical term) your cardstock onto the ink. I used Neenah White for this project. You can also do this technique with glossy paper for more intense colors.

Repeat the steps above until you have the pattern you want. I was looking for a more solid design so I repeated several times.

Die cut your leaves.

As a final step I sponged the leaf edges with a little brown ink.
